Homeschooling Pros and Cons

 

Benefits of homeschooling

Homeschooling is like intensive parenting where parents take complete responsibility of their child’s education, spends most of their time with children and show patience to teach their children. Some parents believe that they can give better education to children at home. It gives enough freedom to the parents to teach religious faiths at any depth or not to teach them at all. Homeschooling is also a better option in case of children having any kind of disability. Problems of transportation can also be resolved this way.

Homeschooling vs. Public Schools:

One of the hottest debates of recent times is homeschooling vs public schooling. Technology has also made it more favorable and parents having technology knowledge prefer their children to homeschool through technology and support groups. Some of the reasons for which homeschooling is preferred are tailored student learning plans, emphasis on mastery instead of grades, private school expense, family togetherness and the security. Those who prefer public schools argue that homeschooling provides less opportunity for socialization and outdoor sports.

Advantages and Disadvantages of homeschooling:

Homeschooling gives students the advantage of education, physical and religious freedom. Children have the freedom to learn what they want and can learn it at any time and to the extent they desire depending on the goals being set for education. Homeschooled children do not have to rush for scheduled time by public schools and are well rested so they develop a better relationship with the family.

Teaching a child academically is not an easy task which appears challenging to professionals too then how come parents do the task at home without any prior training. So homeschooling can be a threat if parents do not have mastery upon teaching age appropriate curriculum.
